    Saturn's Note:

    These are some cookies that I made for my SIL when she was having issues with fibre in her diet. She was encouraged to have oatmeal and so I tried to find her a "good" oatmeal cookie. This was attempt number two. This recipe is adapted from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook. I have included two versions of a great cookie. When I make the cowboy cookies, I make them BIG.

    Simple Oatmeal Cookies

    For Cowboy Cookies (add in)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°.
    2. 2
      To make Simple Oatmeal Cookies: Mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl.
    3. 3
      Stir in the remaining ingredients.
    4. 4
      Arrange by teaspoonfuls on unbuttered cookie sheets. Leave about 1 inch in between. They do spread a wee bit. Not too much though.
    5. 5
      Bake until the edges are brown, about 10-12 minutes.
    6. 6
      For Cowboy Cookies: Add in coconut and chocolate chips when you add in the rest of the ingredients (Step 3). Drop them by the FULL tablespoon on a cookie sheet. (Might have to "squish" them a bit) Bake for 14-17 minutes or until mostly brown.

      Awesome cookies! I left out the raisins and wished I would have added more chocolate chips to replace them. Will make again, no questions asked!

      These tasted very cinnamony, but I had a problem. Mine came out rather dry and caky, not moist and gooey, like the recipe and other reviews said. Didn't have molasses, so used honey instead and substituted 1/2 the sugar for dark brown. I also did not use raisins; not our favorite addition to cookies. Perhaps my oven was too hot; I don't have a thermometer but relied on the setting I'd placed on my oven's dial. Will definitely try them again and modify the heat. Thank you for posting!
